  1. General Discussion
    Hello, I am new to PFF so if this has been discussed please forgive me. I have a 2009 Glacier Bay Catamaran 26'. When I bought the boat, it had a Simrad Evo3 12" with a transom mounted transducer. The sonar does not read really well at any speeds past 2-3 mph and I'm thinking its because of the...
  2. Inshore Reports
    No tournament winners but I did find a nice school of mid-slot reds yesterday. With it being so hot they were in a little deeper water and when the tide started falling and a thunderstorm approached it seemed to really trigger the bite. I managed to get quite a few entries into the Florida CCA...
  3. Inshore Reports
    I recently spent several days in Panama City preparing for the Florida Pro Redfish Series Tournament and had some pretty phenomenal luck during prefishing. Tournament day conditions were completely different but I did catch lots of small reds and my partner caught tarpon with a top water Unfair...
  4. Safety
    I am planning a trip to the Florida Keys and I know that there was a lot of damage (both to land and water) caused by Hurricane Irma. I just got an e-mail update from Navionics showing a bunch of updates to those areas. Since I am not familiar with the area here are a couple before and after...

    I was running across Escambia Bay at what I thought was a pretty safe distance from the shoreline (I run a Hewes that drafts 10") and my shallow water alert on my Simrad went off and I was suddenly in less than two feet of water. Here is the screen shot showing it on my Navionics Chart using the...

    I just had this show up in my inbox from Navionics. I use the Platinum+ maps and I love them. I think you can buy them online at www.navionics.com and I know that Bass Pro and West Marine have them. I use the 907p+ and it has all of the offshore wrecks already programmed in on the maps...
  7. General Discussion
    I have never had much luck fishing in Choctahatchee Bay until I started studying the bathometric maps of the North side of the Bay after fishing in Horseshoe Beach in a similar area. There are miles of grass flats that surprisingly have some pretty impressive terrain changes that I discovered...

    If you’re competing in the Emerald Coast Division Florida Pro Redfish Series this week-end in Panama City Beach make sure your Navionics charts are up to date!

    Your Simrad has automatically recorded all your sonar logs since day one. And it’s still recording any trip if you see the line after your cursor when navigating. Simrad has changed their software which now excludes depth data when exporting sonar logs in the GPX format. If you purchase a new...
